A Kansas federal court did not err in dismissing fish illustrator Joseph Tomelleri’s copyright infringement suit against MEDL Mobile and Jason Siniscalchi, the developers and marketers of a fishing app called FishID, because Tomelleri failed to show that his injuries arose from MEDL’s Kansas activities, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Denver has determined. Furthermore, the lower court did not abuse its discretion in denying Tomelleri’s alternative motion to transfer. The decision of the district court was affirmed (Tomelleri v. MEDL Mobile, Inc., August 3, 2016, Tymkovich, T.).

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
